Solaris (Re 2005) Cert. PG Picture house at FACT

  • Running time165 minutes
  • DirectorAndrei Arsenyvich Tarkovsky
  • CastDonatas Banionis, Natalya Bondarchuk, Anatoli Solonitsyn, Nikolai Grinko

Adapted from the novel by Stanislaw Lem, SOLARIS remains one of Tarkovsky's most famous films. Remade many years later by Steven Soderbergh, this original version of SOLARIS is a meditation on the nature of desire and memory, and the self-imposed walls that keep us from realising our greatest wishes. Tarkovsky reportedly re-shot more than 40% of the film, despite the constant protestations of his Soviet Film Board superiors. The film's visual sense and pacing are extraordinary, while the central idea of a man's wish to correct the mistakes of his past is given a cinematic quality that is its exact visual equivalent.
